Franklin Public Schools: Accelerated Dismissal/No Afterschool & Evening Activities for Dec 17

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

Accelerated Dismissal Called

Dear Franklin Families and Faculty/Staff,

We continue to monitor weather conditions and the forecast calls for some icing to continue in our area this afternoon and then a brief change to snow again between 6-8 PM.

As a result of the forecast, the Franklin Public Schools will begin releasing high school and middle school students in an accelerated fashion on Tuesday afternoon, December 17, 2019, but it will not be on an early release schedule.

Middle school and high school will dismiss 15 minutes early to get the buses on the road. Elementary schools will dismiss at normal times. The thought behind this is that any delays in travel caused by weather conditions may still allow for the elementary students to arrive at home on time and safely.

All afternoon and evening activities for Franklin Public Schools will be cancelled today, Tuesday, December 17, 2019. There will be no late bus service after school.

Solutions families – The Solutions Program will open as usual. Solutions staff are assessing the weather; if a decision is made to close Solutions early, a Solutions staff member will contact each family to advise them of the early closing time.

Sincerely,

The Franklin Public Schools

MassBudget: Many Massachusetts youth await spots in after-school programs

Many Massachusetts youth await spots in after-school programs

Meaningful activities outside of and after the school day can go far in boosting a child's educational achievement and life outcomes. But many Massachusetts youth that need after-school and summer programs are not able to get into one.

Thousands of high-needs youth (those who are economically disadvantaged, English language learners, or special education students) in Massachusetts lack public support for after-school programs, according to a new Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) report, Investment in After-School and Summer Learning in Massachusetts: Current Funding and Unmet Need.

Not all communities and families have the resources to provide enrichment activities to young people. In 2011, the highest-income families across the country were able to spend almost seven times more on out-of-school opportunities than the lowest-income families.
The MassBudget report examines federal and state funding for after-school and summer programs. In the 2016-2017 school year, public entities provided more than $207 million, after adjusting for inflation, for after-school programs. Despite these efforts, children with the greatest needs often lack opportunities to participate in such programs.
The Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget) produces policy research, analysis, and data-driven recommendations focused on improving the lives of low- and middle-income children and adults, strengthening our state's economy, and enhancing the quality of life in Massachusetts.
